Year 5 Visit Safewise

Year 5 travelled to the Safewise Centre in Weymouth to learn about keeping themselves and other safe in a variety of situations. We identified fire hazards in a home and how to prevent them. If we were to be in a situation with fire we learnt to GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL 999.

After experiencing a real fire (behind safety glass) we moved outdoors to learn about road safety. We used different types of road crossings whilst others were driving around ‘Safety Town’ in mobility scooters!

Nakirebe Primary School – Uganda

Last Friday disaster struck our partner school in Uganda when the year 1 and boy’s dormitory roofs were severely damaged by torrential rain and storms. We are asking for extra support to help them to repair the damage swiftly. Sadly, many books and other resources were also lost.

Help with the fundraising by making and/or buying cakes after school on Friday 7th April @ 3.15pm.

Red Nose Day 2017

Thank you to all parents, grandparents and children who have supported us on Red Nose Day 2017. We are all wearing red, we held a special assembly and this afternoon we will be holding wacky races on the playground and school field, with tea and cakes.

And here are the wacky races for key stage 1 (with brilliant help and leadership from our school sports ambassadors), and the cross-country running for key stage 2.

Years 5 & 6 – Roman Trip

Year 5 and 6 visited Dorchester to explore its Roman heritage. They visited the keep museum where curator Chris talked to them about Roman soldiers, including their armour and fighting tactics. Then they walked into Dorchester to visit the Roman town house at the back of County Hall – the best preserved example in the country.  After lunch a look around the replica round houses at the Prince of Wales School then off to Maiden Castle where they climbed the ramparts; saw the Roman temple and found relics in the mole hills – watch this space to see what they found!
